The Sea is a work in progress. Different geographical points and a number of temporal encounters inspire the creation of a series of various works. The Aegean Sea, The Adriatic Sea, the North Sea. The sea in winter or in summer, sun-drenched or frozen, in daytime or at night.
There are, indeed, things that cannot be put into words. They make themselves manifest.
The white mosaics are inspired by the frozen Northern Sea. They are complemented by a series of drawings.
The marble gets fragmented into thousands of small tesserae, bearing the transparency of ice. The darker tesserae, which are black, brown and grey in colour, form traces of moving waves. All tesserae float on the white mortar, which unifies them. The work is finally rubbed down with a power sander so that its surface becomes smooth like a marble that had never been fragmented. Its cold surface alludes to water that has been frozen.
